If there is one accessory you can’t live without, it would have to be your handbag, purse, or bag. Bags reflect your sense of style and who you are just like the clothes, shoes, and other items that you wear.

In most cases, our purses carry essential things we need every day like cell phones, comb, brush, lotion, and perfume.  Therefore, you want to choose a bag that works for your lifestyle and your personal taste.

Here are the major handbag trends we adore for the spring:

For silhouettes, you want to look for bags with structure such as satchels and totesSatchel bags can hold plenty of things and are very comfortable to carry. Totes and weekend bags have downsized this season with a smaller, yet spacious built. Large clutches and foldover bags give you the ability to hold more things than the traditional small clutch.

If you aren’t into big bags, there are a few small handbag options. Small shoulder bags can be carried in hands or on your shoulders. Wristlets are perfect for women who always have trouble finding their purses or tend to lose things.

For the spring, handbags come in an array of colors and prints. Knitted bags in bright colors and patterns add great texture to your outfit. Printed bags in florals and bold geometric designs work well with clothing in complimentary colors. There are Bright bags in neon yellows, greens, and pinks are for the daring color lovers.

Choose a piece using this concept for a whimsical, unique look.Handbags with mixed textures and materials such as wicker, leather, and fabrics are something to look for.

Purses are statement pieces that can speak volumes about any fashionistas carrying them.
